Re: Nipple Shield question.
FYI, if you're giving her your pumped milk, you aren't saving her from thrush. Thrush is easily transferred onto your pump/parts and in your milk. Better to treat you both and get it all done in one fell swoop. Switching back and forth from bottle to breast is hard for some babies. More practice will be frustrating but should help in the long run. And if you need a morale boost, contact La Leche League. They'll pump you up and make you feel like you can do anything!
